Visited many times with my parents when I was a kid and its still the same many, many years later!! Only the sign seems to have changed as well as the staff. Pies are great as is the mash and liquor consistently the best for miles. Big "shout out" for the chilli vinegar. Never been a fan of eels ,... More

Traditional food and decor, limited menu but very good quality and very tasty. Has home made and excellent beef pies, genuine eels and liquor and at cheap prices too. I try to call in whenever I am in the area.

This is a traditional eel pie house so if you are looking for a choice then this is not the place for you. It's eel and mash or pie and mash, that's it. The pies were nice and juicy and the mash was very smooth plus lashings of liquor and the bench seating just adds to the atmosphere.
